10 September 2014 Tour of Britain - Stage 3, Wales. Wales hosted Stage 3 of the Tour of Britain yesterday, welcoming world class cyclists including national treasures Mark Cavendish and Bradley Wiggins. Stage 3 of the Tour ran from Newtown in North Powys to Abergavenny in the Brecon Beacons, crossing into both the Cambrian Mountains and the Wye Valley. It is undoubtedly one of the most picturesque stages of the Tour, from the mighty vistas of the Black Mountains to the idyllic towns of Talgarth and Abergavenny It also happens to be the only Stage that climaxes with an ascent. And not just any ascent - the Tumble is infamous in cycling circles as a gruelling 6km climb. The region is also home to Britain’s only in National Cycle Collection and Museum in Llanwrtyd Wells. This is a must-see for any cycle fan, with bikes dating from 1819 right the way to the latest racing models plus other cycling memorabilia.
